republican fight over funding and the affordable care act continues in texas, with the state's junior senator, ted cruz, leading the charge against the expansion of health care coverage in this country. >> i am publicly committed along with a number of other senators that under no circumstances will i vote for any continuing resolution that funds even one penny of obama care. now, why is it that every reporter in the media and a significant percentage of republicans assume with an impasse that president obama will never, ever give up his principles, so republicans have to give up theirs? if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink. >> the senior senator from texas disagrees with his junior senator. >> even if you shut down the government, mandatory spending would continue to pay for the implementation of obama care. we're all on the same side when it comes to the objective. there is some difference of opinion as to the viability, or the likelihood of success of this particular tactic. >> a new survey from usa today shows t
every year the number one pick of all the law enforcement agencies within texas. their number one pick, all right? and i am a supporter of you -- you don't know it, but i am a supporter of you and a supporter of everyone in law enforcement. and i want you to do whatever is the proper thing. this lady did not -- i know in my heart, was not involved in intentionally walking out and stealing out $57. >> you don't know me, but i am the number one pick of law enforcement agencies. that seriously happened. that was texas's republican lieutenant governor, david dewhurst, on the phone, not doing anything, obviously, illegal, but throwing his weight around like a texas sumo wrestler, trying to wrangle some poor police sergeant in allen, texas, from releasing somebody from jail, a friend who had been jailed on shoplifting charges. the lieutenant governor, the number one pick of law enforcement, just wanted that police sergeant to do the proper thing, which should apparently be that he should take into account that any friend of texas' lieutenant governor must be innocent and, therefore must be r
why in a minute he's not just another whackadoo. live to dallas, texas, where ted cruz is about to speak in just a moment. see the big defund obama care banner which lets you know what the event is going to be like. also tonight the terrifying prospect that one result of the bankruptcy of the city of detroit could be the thousands of potential personal bankruptcies caused by the slashing of retirees' pensions. a full discussion on that is coming up. all that plus i am absolutely geeking out a little bit over what i think is the coolest car ever. the tesla. i will tell you why it's so cool but also why it's so important. >>> but tonight we begin with a man who i believe is the most dangerous politician on the american right. in october 2007 i sat in the media gallery of the united states supreme court and watched the solicitor general of texas argue on behalf of the state that he should have the ability to put to death a mexican national, jose, who had been convicted of raping and murdering two teenage girls in houston. he won that argument and he was executed by texas on august
right. that was texas senator ted cruz telling jonathan carl that he is, in fact, a natural born citizen, therefore eligible to be president. cruz went the extra mile to release his birth certificate to the dallas morning news which reported cruz was born in california to an american mother, has dual citizenship. and following that report, senator cruz released a statement renouncing his canada citizenship. he says now the dallas morning news that i have dual citizenship, i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should only be an american. it's odd for me to say about a guy who i disagree with on many points, he couldn't be more right. the irony, of course, it mirrors the phony scenario of those who have been arguing to this day that president obama was born overseas, mostly in kenya and not eligible to be president. he was born to an american mother in the state of hawaii that was actually in america, by the way, but the birthers are all but silent when it comes to ted cruz. cruz has already visited the important presidential primary states of iowa and south carolina a
was born. unless the texas republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say." ted cruz released his canadian birth certificate in response to inquiries from the "dallas morning news." today ted cruz's senate press secretary released this oddly worded statement. "to our knowledge, he never had canadian citizenship." now, when a senator's staff speak for the senator says "to our knowledge," everything that follows that is a statement that everyone in that senate office knows might have to be quickly revised, and so it has been. the "washington post" is now reporting that ted cruz will renounce his canadian citizenship. cruz said, "now the dallas morning news says that i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that is true, then sure, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada, but i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should be only an american because i was a u.s. citizen at birth, because i left calgary when i was 4, and have lived my entire life since then in the u.s., an
was convicted in one of the largest leaks of u.s. secrets in history. in texas the accused fort hood shooter rests his case without calling any witnesses to testify on his behalf. nidal hasan is accused of killing 13 people and wounding dozens at the military base in 2009. he could face the death penalty. we have live reports on both of these cases coming up. but first, brand new stories and breaking news. >> she was taken against her will by a suspected killer and family friend. now a request for this kidnapped teenager to give a dna sample. who is asking for this very personal information? >>> also, is it safe to go into the woods if you're end of summer plans take you outside. you better beware. our medical experts on the rising signs of ticks. >>> video of an unbelievable crash. it is all "happening now." jon: and we begin with this today. just how massive is the government's snooping program? a new report says probably more than you might think. good morning to you, i'm jon scott. heather: a whole lot more. i'm heather childers in for jenna lee. the answer to that, 75%. that is how much
of texas born in calgary, canada. the tea party loves him, given the controversy over mr. obama's birth certificate and speculation cruz is running for president, this probably had to come up eventually. this is the birth certificate. his father born in cuba, his mom in delaware. cruz issued a statement saying, quote, because my mother was a u.s. citizen born in delaware, i was a u.s. citizen by birth. i may technically have dual citizenship. if that's true, i will denounce canadian citizenship, nothing against canada. but i am an american by birth and as a u.s. senator, i believe i should be only an american. a person born outside of the united states and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is a citizen of the united states who resided in the united states. when obama was asked about cruz's eligibility, trump said perhaps not. it came up this morning. >> under no circumstances will i vote for a continuing resolution that funds even one penny of obama care. >> reporter: cruz is a 2016 star already, won a conservative straw poll in denver recently, and this citizenship issue
a shot at getting elected as the next governor of texas. dylan byers, media critic for politico will be here to talk about "the washington post" purchase and michael, democratic strategist will take a look at the kentucky race and others. but first... >> announcer: this is the "full court press." >> here's what's making news. america's children are slimming down. for the first time in decades, we can say our children are not getting fatter. a study from the cdc that examined the nation's preschoolers found in 18 states, the obesity rate is actually falling. that's the good news. the bad news is the obesity rate held steady in do states. some of the states, ten states overall were examined due to the way data is collected. but a lot of people are crediting michelle obama's let's move campaign for this good news. it certainly helps keep the weight off. >> bill: she's got to get some credit for that. and just raising awareness of the problem. >> absolutely. that's the good news. >> bill: a lot of republicans are beating up on her saying this is silly. no, this is a serious problem.
psychiatrist admitted he opened fire at the texas army base in 2009, killing 13 people and wounding 30 others. casey stiegel is live at fort hood, texas. casey, hasan still not cross-examining his witnesss? >> reporter: , no, patti ann, he is isn't. i was in the courtroom. i had a chance to study him. he looked down at the table most of the time. when the judge addresses him he is very respectful, yes, ma'am, no, ma'am. but as these witnesses are giving gut-wrenching testimony, he mostly stairs at the table and doesn't make any kind of eye contact with them. major hasan had a relatively bizarre interruption of court yesterday. it came during some of the most horrific testimony we heard thus far. the sergeant who supervised the medical facility where the shooting happened was on the stand. she was in middle of describing a scene of non-stop gunshots and chaos, when hasan randomly interrupted and objected asked please be reminded she was under oath. clearly she was under oath. she had already sworn in. so everyone kind of moved on. when it comes to the cross-examination of these witnesses not r
lee dimaggio may be heading to texas or canada. that alert did not specify why. but obviously the search has crossed state lines at this point. >> so, obviously, border security is pretty critical, but what are they doing about this notion that he could be headed to texas. i mean, where are the texas authorities on this? >> reporter: well, a texas affiliate, at this time, we are still waiting for an update from sheriff's officials. they gave us their last press conference around 9:00 last night. we're still waiting to hear back, but, obviously, communication must be going on to make sure that this search is thorough, to hopefully find these children. because it's been more than 30 hours now. this started sunday evening. and if they left before that, they can be far beyond california, possibly not even in the u.s. at this time. but we are still waiting for those updates. >> okay. i want to put up those two pictures again, candice, if i can. and i'm just going to repeat what the issue is here. we've got hanna and ethan. their mother was murdered and another child, who is yet to
'm a u.s. citizen by birth. >> he couldn't be more right. welcome back to "hardball." that was texas senator ted cruz telling jonathan carl he is a natural born citizen, therefore eligible to be president. cruz went the extra mile to release his birth certificate to the dallas morning news which reported cruz who was born in canada to an american mother has dual citizenship is by the accident of being born up there. following that report he released a statement. he said now the dallas morning news says i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that to be true, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada but i'm an american by birth and a u.s. senator, i believe i should only be an american. well said. i couldn't agree with him more. odd to say in their about a guy i probably disagree with on many points but he could not be more right. the irony here of course, is that cruz's birth mirrors the phony scenario concocted by the birthers including donald trump to falsely have been arguing even to this day that president obama was born overseas mostly in kenya
was found in his texas apartment after the shooting. hasan's attorney verified the authen tisity of the documents adding the army major directed him to provide the writings to fox news. quote he represented to me he either personally wrote in langhand or typed the statements at issue. all of the documents were prepared by major nidal hasan. staff sergeant sean manning shot six times spoke to fox news a year ago. with the defense department dealing with the attack he said via skype the public should make its own assessment. >> the government has treated this as an act of terrorism. i hope if people hear the words from hasan's own mouth that they understand this was an act of terrorism. >> reporter: in the only document bearing a date he writes i am compelled to renounce any oath of allegiances that require me to support/defendant any man made constitution like the constitution of the united states over the commandments mandated in islam. in another hand written document he states if i make any mistakes i ask for forgiveness in understanding. hasan declared american democracy is in
was putting up no defense whatsoever they say in an effort to get the death penalty. casey seigel is in texas with the details. >>> a bizarre twist in the trial of nidal hasan. he is defending himself with 13 counts of murder and 31 counts of attempted murder following a shooting at fort hood in 2009. court in recess after hasan's stand by attorney takes issue with representing the army sigh kie twist becau -- psychiatrist wants the death penalty. >> this attorney is saying i am having a hard time doing that because my client waived the white flag. >> the decision to represent himself gives him the opportunity to question victims on the witness stand. there is concern that experience could retraumatize those that are in the shooting. >> it is horrible to put individuals through that. this is unfortunately one of the unfortunate things that happen. >> the army major admits he was behind the attack but military law prevents him from pleading guilty since he faces a death sentence. trying the case in a nonmilitary court would be a much different situation. >> game over, don't waste tax payer mon

at the university of texas md anderson cancer center. bo biden is the attorney general of delaware. he was admitted to the cancer center as a patient tuesday. following tests there on monday. doctors are trying to determine the cause of a severe bout of disorientation dizziness and weakness bo biden suffered last week during a family vacation. md anderson center specializes in the detection and treating rare forms of cancer but there's no diagnosis yet so there's no treatment plan. the younger biden sought treatment medically in chicago and philadelphia before arriving in houston at the cancer center. on monday when he got to houston, bo biden sent out, via twitter, this picture of he and his wife suggesting he was very happy at all the good wishes he received. vice president biden is scheduled to appear friday in his hometown of scranton pennsylvania, with president obama, as part of the president's bus tour promoting new ideas on college affordability. sources say mr. biden's schedule may change because he may need to spend more time with bo biden. but the friday appearance
will take it down another 0.15%. we are north of the 13th largest economy in the world in texas, so you have to remain competitive. if you want people to invest more, if you allow people to keep more of their money, we know as conservatives, they will either suspended or save it and invest, which is good for the county. we overhauled our worker compensation system. we have some of the highest rates in the nation as well as in the region. we revamped our system, moving from an antiquated system, moving to a new system that will essentially safe employers, people who create jobs, 15% to 20% on their premiums every year. people always say, stop talking about social problems. i think that is nonsense. you take every social issue known to man, whether it is high incarceration rates, drug and substance abuse issues -- i think they can all be traced to one key ingredient, and that is the breakdown of the family unit. this year in oklahoma we said we would do things to promote the family, going on a campaign to express why strong families are not as good for society, they are good for the economy, a
you texans call up, because this administration was responsible for the annexation of texas. the tylers have a lot of children. >> it is what kept them apart for a great deal of their married lives. john tyler was constitutionally incapable of being out of public office. he was addicted to it so left her at home to run the family, to run the business, and to continue to manage this incredible group of children they had almost from the very start. >> running their plantation would have been how large an operation? >> one of the issues is a are always on the very edge of solvency, so they never live one place more than 10 years. they are always moving around. they own between 30 and 35 slaves, and they are growing wheat and corn for about 600 acres to 900 acres, and that is between plantations. they then moved to the other side of virginia, so they are continuing to try to figure out a way during these striking economic changes to the country and go into what is going on in 1837, to find a way they can keep their heads above water, and with john tyler gone for so long and so o
